Future Calls for Proposals

The current phase of the Erasmus Mundus programme runs from 2009-2013.

EACEA/42/11 will be the last Call for Proposals to select Erasmus Mundus Action 1 Joint Programmes (EMMCs and EMJDs). There will be no selection of these programmes in 2013. There will however be a selection of Erasmus Mundus Action 2 Partnerships and Action 3 Promotion Projects in 2013.

The European Commission has proposed for a new programme for education, training, youth and sport in 2014-2020 – Erasmus for All. This will include international cooperation under its remit.
